Transcript of Athena
She is depicted crowed with a crested helm, carrying a shield and spear, and wearing the snake trimmed cloak wrapped around her breast and arm, adorned with the monstrous head of the Gorgon (female monsters with snakes for hair)
Athena was the goddess of the city Athens and defended the city with great care. She gave the gift of the olive tree to her people for oil, food, and wood. Athena also invented the bridle (allowed man to tame horses), the trumpet, the flute, the pot, the rake, the plow, the ship, and the chariot.
Athena is the virgin goddess of war, reason, intelligence, crafts, the defense of towns, and heroic endeavor. She is the embodiment of wisdom and purity, making her Zeus's favorite child. She is represented with an owl and being the protector of cities her favorite was Athens.
The Parthenon was built in honor of Athena. It is considered to be one of the wonders of the world. Its main purpose was to hold the twelve foot statue of Athena that was made of ivory and gold. Athena was depicted standing as a helmeted martial goddess. Her left hand rested on a shield and in her right hand she held a statue of a winged Nike. Unfortunately the original statue is lost but a modern full-scale replica of Athena statue can be seen in Nashville, Tennessee.
